    no news

Round Table

Marco Cl.

  • Gaudi
    • added specific exit code for corrupted files (Markus, implemented the trigger of the incident)
    • few more improvements on CMake configuration (e.g. allow for use in the nightlies)
    • finalizing the release, while waiting for LCGCMT 64b
  • Modified the "tag package" web interface to edit the CMake configuration file too.
  • Committed CMake configuration to LHCb and planning Lbcom, Rec and Brunel by the end of the week (including some fixes to warnings).
  • Will add a hook to disconnect from databases in DetCond, to allow for the 'late forking' implemented by Nathalie.


  • Using MySQL on demand service for Dirac (instead of the custom instance).


  • Released LbScripts v7r3 (as production).
  • We have requests to run SLC5 binaries on SLC6 hosts (it works for gcc43, but it does not with gcc46... it requires a hack in LCGCMT tarball)
  • Profiling memory of Stripping with latest RootCnv: 3GB -> 2.5GB (to be confirmed)


  • Problem with Oracle ONLINE DB: '&' leaked in an XML strings
    • fixed all the problematic rows
    • Clara added code to sanitize XML before storing it in the DB.


  • New tag.
  • New SQLDDDB release planned for this week to release new scripts.
